Mother’s Day Weekend Art, Garden and Studio Tour

The San Dieguito Art Guild, a nonprofit group that celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, will host their Mother’s Day Weekend Art, Garden and Studio Tour May 9 and 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Take your mom or best friends on a leisurely tour of the 10 North County homes where visitors can peek into an assortment of artists’ studios, peruse more than 30 unique exhibits of locally made art, and relax in each unique coastal garden. Artists from the San Dieguito Art Guild will be positioned in the gardens showing and selling their paintings, ceramics, glass, gourd art, fiber arts, photography, jewelry and much more. Free refreshments will be served at every stop.

The 10 homes are within easy driving distance in the Encinitas area. Many feature working artists’ studios. This year’s tour chair, Laura Lowenstein says, “The art guild is gearing up for Mother's Day Garden Touranother wonderful tour of local homes with talented artists placed in each garden. We’re focusing on creating a warm and welcoming experience for families and friends to enjoy themselves surrounded by natural beauty and art.”
